. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the number came out of the household survey, 800,000 plus number, there is a lot of margin for error, possibly as much as 400,000. that is admitted by folks within the labor department, as well. i think you can't get too hung up on the overall numbers because typically these are revised upward or downward. that tends to happen a month later when we stop paying attention. >> heather: what will the numbers do in terms of swaying voters' opinions, specifically undecided voter? do you expect to see a change in the polls as a result of this? >> it's a tough question. i generally think the jobs reports do not move as much of opinion of voting public with the amount of noise in the d.c. bubble so to speak. with all the rest
. >> as the administration concedeed the attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> team obama called the rhetoric erratic and wants a counterattack ad to run in virginia slamming the poorly reviewed european trip four months ago. >> if this is how he handles the world now, think what romney might do as president. >> eager to look resolute and ready to be commander-in-chief romney promised actions. >> for the sake of peace, we must make clear to iran through actions not just words that the nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> he pledged help to rebels trying to topple the regime and renewed the charge that obama administration threw israel under the bus. >> i'd restore the presence of the aircraft task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with isr increase our military assistance and coordination. >> reporter: regarding afghanistan, romney said the president depicted anyone who disagrees with the withdrawal timetables as someone arguing for endless war. >> the route to war and potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to th
the regime and renewed the charge that obama administration threw israel under the bus. >> i'd restore the presence of the aircraft task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination. >> reporter: regarding afghanistan, romney said the president depicted anyone who disagrees with the withdrawal timetables as someone arguing for endless war. >> the route to war and potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremist extremists wo ravaged their country and use it to launch attacks of 9/11. >> democrats complain that romney's speech was filled with criticism of president obama foreign policy but not a lot of specific alternatives. this week is vice presidential debate but next week, president obama and romney meets in face-off on long iland. romney is planning another major speech, this time on the economy. bret? >> bret: carl cameron traveling with governor romney. thank you. there is new information tonight about how bad the security conditions were i

touchdown during a foreign policy speech in virginia today. charging the obama administration is sitting on the sidelines, he did not offer specifics, but laid out this policy. >> in syria, i will work with our partners to organize those members of the opposition who share our values. they obtained the arms they need to defeat the tanks and helicopters and fighter jets. >> mitt romney in virginia today. for more on what he had to say and how foreign policy is playing his campaign, i am joined by our foreign policy correspondent. thank you for coming in. how would president romney differ from president obama? >> i cannot tell how it would differ. he does say that he would go so far as to arm some of the rebels through our partners. the way the paragraph is carefully constructed come a gives the impression that he would arm the rebels. if you read it, it says it through our allies. that is what we are doing. that is what we're doing to begin with. not very different. >> you were just in iran, what did you make of mitt romney's strong words on iran? >> he talks about how he would not lead i
to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t

states" was a very interesting and important one. i think that the obama administration would say, look, if there was no daylight the israelis might well have taken military action by now and the u.s. would be sucked into it. the u.s. would have to join it. so there has been daylight, but the daylight in the obama administration's view has been intended to say to the israelis, "look, we're not at the point yet where they're about to get a bomb, there are other possibilities, including more sanctions and more sabotage." >> rose: prime minister netanyahu would welcome this speech? >> by and large yes. but there were some interesting statements that i'm not sure if the word would be "welcome." when governor romney talked about a two-state solution in the middle east and talked about a prosperous and secure independent palestinian state, that was interesting to me because given some of his previous comments people may have wondered whether he represented something of a departure and that to me was his way of saying look, i'm in the mainstream on important issues, i'm in the mainstream on th
policy wise? >> the obama administration has never had a foreign policy. bill, he's only had this assortment of confused, naive initiatives poisoned by ideology, deformed by politic, driven by politics, and the only thing these initiatives in the foreign affairs realm have had in common has been their failure. if you look from benghazi to beijing, in this afro-asian realm of crisis, there is not one troubled country, not one, not russia, not china, certainly not iran, afghanistan, pakistan, certainly not israel, not one country in which relations are healthier or more constructive than under george w. bush, and that was a pretty low standard. >> bill: what do you say, colonel hunt? >> i think the specificity of the policy when you look at libya in which we wanted a lower american profile with the weakest profile we've had security since 1979 first ambassador we had killed failed. in afghanistan issues we have people training, killing us. that is not -- and the surge was supposed to crush the taliban. the commander on the ground reports says the taliban is back. he talked abou
what number the obama administration gets flashed up on a tv screen, they know they're out of work, and they wanted to see if they're comfortable with the challenger. not only were they comfortable, they'll keep being comfortable. the reason romney is going to keep doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him. the media tells us, you know, gives us snippets, paraphrase, in other words what he was trying to say is. let's see what he said. >> sean: if you want to look at polls -- we're still 29 days out. four weeks in a campaign we all agree is an eternity, but pew, battleground, politico, rasmussen. it goes deeper than that. romney is up in florida in a poll, up in virginia in a poll. >> even in ohio. >> sean: dead even in ohio. it's a two-point race in pennsylvania. it's a two-point -- >> well -- >> sean: wait a minute. it's a one-point race in wisconsin. this now is putting obama in a position where he has to defend, defend, defend, defend, defend, at least, you know, six, seven states that he won back in 2008. >> this is all being carried on mitt romney's pe
consumption tumble. and their prices surge. that explains the soaring prices to the obama administration's energy policy. >> there is limited amount of corn now. and ethanol is still a big buyer. >> reporter: under present circumstances that seems no easy task. a live stock former in nebraska. he has 60 of his 300 head of cattle. to minimize feed costs he now uses less corn in big mixes. so, he is a republican. he is not demanding that the corn restrictions be lifted. >> we are using this right hereafter the ethanol is taken out. to me it is a plus. it is a plus. i am not an advocate of throwing ethanol out the window. >> he is growing corn for live stock feed. while shipping the grain for ethanol use. thanks to the government policy, corn for bioethanol fuel is a key source of stable income for farmers. and since many farmers, the republican party, finding it difficult to press for a change of policy. beef supplies are expected to dwin dwindle in the u.s. this winter. pushing up prices even higher. and take preventative action is likely because beef prices to rise and grain prices to so
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

at the end of the month. the obama administration is reportedly considering whether to begin unilateral military strikes on alleged al qaeda targets in north africa. "the washington post" reports concerns about al qaeda gains in mali, as well as weapons gained from libya. the u.s. has launched secret intelligence operations, including the use of civilian aircraft to conduct surveillance over the sahara desert. new figures show september was iraq's's the deadliest month in more than two years. sure when he would be detained. >> in regard to our reaction to the verdict today by enforcing the verdict, we were expecting that. we know that we are still targeted for our role in the pro-democracy movement. they expected the same, that there would be this verdict. they believe also that they are innocent and did not do any ms. doing, wrongdoing. >> that was ali al-ekry speaking hours before his arrest. york attorney general eric schneiderman has filed a lawsuit against jp morgan chase for alleged fraud in mortgage-backed securities issued by bear stearns. he says investors were defrauded by mor

obama and this administration is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people who paid into social security their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of united states of using a government program to manip
